When Gillette Stadium first opened in 2002, one of the first concerts ever performed at the venue came courtesy of the Rolling Stones, who visited the home of the New England Patriots as part of their Licks Tour on Sept. 5, 2002. This year, the Stones will return to Gillette for a third time, highlighting a Gillette Stadium Summer Concert Series schedule that blends country and classic rock.
Here is a complete list of artists set to play Gillette in 2019.
Note: This article will be updated as more information is announced.
The Rolling Stones
Classic rock fans should prepare for plenty of satisfaction when the Rolling Stones head to Gillette on July 7, this time stopping by as part of the group’s No Filter Tour. The band had originally been scheduled to perform on June 8, but announced on March 30 that the first leg of their tour would be postponed and rescheduled so that frontman Mick Jagger could receive medical treatment. Tickets originally purchased for the June 8 show will still be honored, and ticket holders who cannot make the July 7 date can receive refunds through their Ticketmaster accounts. (Sunday, July 7 at 7:30 p.m.; $240 and up; all ages; tickets available here)
Luke Bryan will perform in Foxborough on the first day of summer, June 21, as part of his Sunset Repeat Tour. Cole Swindell, Brett Young, Jon Langston, and DJ Rock are scheduled to join Bryan for the show, which will be Bryan’s third time playing Gillette. (Friday, June 21 at 5 p.m.; $40 and up; all ages; tickets available here)
Dead & Company
As part of the group’s 2019 summer tour, Dead & Company will visit Gillette on June 22. The concert will mark a Boston sports venue hat trick of sorts for the six-piece jam band — Dead & Company played Fenway Park in July 2016 and June 2017 and TD Garden in November 2017. Most recently, the group played the Xfinity Center in Mansfield in May 2018. (Saturday, June 22 at 7 p.m.; $40 and up; all ages; tickets available here)
The Super Mega Ultra Giant Mad Decent Block Party Festival
DJ and producer Diplo is bringing a weekend full of music and fun to Gillette on July 20 and 21 with his Super Mega Ultra Giant Mad Decent Block Party Festival. More than 40 acts are scheduled to perform, including Billie Eilish, G-Eazy, Miguel, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Dillon Francis, and Diplo’s own Major Lazer. Aside from the music, the festival will have a giant bounce house that can accommodate 200 people, a go-kart track, and paintball. (Saturday, July 20 and Sunday, July 21; $99.99 and up; 18+; tickets available here)
George Strait and Blake Shelton
The “King of Country” is also coming to Foxborough this summer. George Strait will take the stage at Gillette on Aug. 17 along with country star and “The Voice” co-star Blake Shelton. Tickets will go on sale on March 29 at 10 a.m. via ticketmaster.com, and the show also will feature Cody Johnson and Caitlyn Smith.
